Evening meditation time. I’m still in shock that another “Lisa Shea” author just released her Cinderella book weeks before my own. The exact same author name. The exact same fairy tale princess. The exact same 30 day period. I have over 300 books out, so I’m not hard to find to see I’ve been working on this area. I’ve been discussing my book for probably over a year.
I have now published mine, even though I wasn’t quite ready to, and will publish book 2 (Snow White) shortly.
A key reason this upsets me is that I worked on my Cinderella series for all this time so it would *counteract* the fairy tale message girls are given. And now there’s a book out which looks to all my readers as if I *did* write a fairy tale version. There’s no way for a reader to look at that book and know it is NOT me. And on Amazon if you click on the “Lisa Shea” name it shows my other books.
Just very upsetting. Time for deep breathing and inward focus. #namaste
Evening meditation time. Today I focused on finalizing the re-editing & reloading of my entire SciFi series. The books even got updated covers. It’s been a multi-day effort but definitely worth it, to have my best possible voice out there. I grow every year with my writing and I like to routinely take a pass at my older books to polish them up. They represent me to the world just as much as my current ones do. Take steps to improve daily! #namaste
Evening meditation time. Sometimes I meditate to classical music – do you do that? What do you listen to? Here’s an article which talks about why music really does help with focus.
Evening meditation time. Just two weeks of meditating can change your life. Invest in yourself and take steps each day.
Evening meditation time. If you haven’t meditated yet today, take a break and do it! It improves nearly every aspect of life. #namaste
Evening meditation time. Did you know poor sleep leads to poor eating and weight gain? Meditating helps you sleep better! #namaste
Today I’m Grateful I have ample healthy food. So many struggle with hunger / inadequate nutrition. 20% of US kids do. A free click here donates to the cause. Please click! What are you grateful for today?
My daily yoga was lovely today – but the warned-of snowstorm never came! We got maybe an inch. Here in Massachusetts that doesn’t even count. April Fools Day maybe? Still, April is here! #namaste
Today I’m grateful I’ve always been an equal earner & partner in my relationships. Apparently younger men disagree – studies find the current generation of men prefers in higher numbers for women to stay home and have less say. Very bizarre that we’re moving backwards.
Why do you think that’s the case? And what are you grateful for?
I love my hula hoop – and that means I use it nearly every day. If you find an exercise you love it makes all the difference. What exercise or activity have you done today? How about some yoga? It’s great for your spine :). #namaste
